Statistical Analysis of Research Data

Overview: Recent advances in cancer biology have resulted in the need for increased statistical analysis of research data. SARD is designed to provide an overview on the general principles of statistical analysis of research data.

The Statistical Analysis of Research Data (SARD) course will be held virtually by WebEx on January 13 and January 27, 2021  as well February 3 and February 10, 2021 from 1:00 - 5:00 p.m. at the National Institutes of Health.

The course will be taught by Paul W. Thurman of Columbia University. The first day will feature univariate data analysis, including descriptive statistics, probability distributions, one- and two-sample inferential statistics. The second day will feature univariate data analysis including one- and two-sample inferential statistics. The third day will feature bivariate data analysis including simple linear regression and multiple linear regression.  The fourth day will feature bivariate data analysis including  non-parametric tools such as Chi-squared and ANOVA tests.

  • The participation of NIH/NCI clinical and postdoctoral fellows who need to learn more about statistics is encouraged. 
  • Class size is limited to the first 100 registrants.
